"American Express is a diverse workplace. The faces you encounter reflect what Canada is all about - a mixture of people from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and ethnicities. Not only does that make for a dynamic environment to work in, but it's also a strategic strength. When employees bring their own unique perspectives to the table, or their experiences from other places they've lived and worked, that often translates into better-developed ideas and more thoughtful outcomes." Michael B., Payments Consultant
